The Headies 2015: Wura Predictions

Head

Okay, the Headies nominees list is out and it’s got everyone talking and making predictions on the artistes who will take home a plaque or two. So we‎ at Wura have decided to make your job a lot easier, by doing an analysis on possible winners on the biggest night of Nigerian music.‎

So sit back, relax, and probably grab a popcorn as we take you through an in depth analysis on each category, who should get the nod, who shouldn’t have been on the list in the first place, and the wildcard for each category.

The Headies Categories and Likely Winners‎

BEST RECORDING OF THE YEAR‎

Ojuelegba – Wizkid

Eyo – Asa

Wish Me Well – Timi Dakolo

Bez – There’s A Fire

Cobhams – Do the right Thing

Wish me well single Wura

And the Headies winner is : ‎This is a non voting category so fan’s sentiment won’t come to influence who the winner will be, so it’s safe to say Timi Dakolo’s “wish me well” has the edge.  The song has got top notch production, ‎acceptability and the longevity factor too. The song will edge out Wizkid’s Ojuelegba because even though its on everyone’s lips at the moment, it lacks lyrical depth and texture.

Wild card: Asa-Eyo

PRODUCER OF THE YEAR‎

Don Jazzy – Godwin (Korede Bello)

Mastakraft – Wiser (Flavour)

Young John – Bobo (Olamide)

Shizzi – Fans Mi (DavidO)

Legendury Beatz – Ojuelegba

Cobhams – There’s A Fire (Bez)‎

And the Headies winner is:

Young John Wura

Young John Wura

Young John:  YBNL owe a lot of their success this year to this young producer, the producer from Akwa Ibom was directly responsible for more than half of the label’s biggest songs including the viral hit that got everyone dancing like we are about to fly called”Shakiti bobo”. His productions are often up tempo with a lot of back end instrumentals that gives a unique melody and vibe to any song he works on, and in my opinion even a frog can sing to a Young John beat and it will come out well.

Wildcard: Mastakraft
